More work on town’s church

Have your say

Church wardens at St Mary’s, Tickhill, have applied to carry out more conservation work on the medieval building.

Plans will include replacement of eroded stonework, re-pointing, the conservation and repair of stained glass windows, as well as removal of corroded window guards.

They also want to instal pigeon netting on the tower roof to be secured below parapet level, which will have three zips to enable full access to the roof for cleaning and inspection purposes. New wrought iron handrails are also required in St Luke’s Chapel.

The total cost of the work, some of which will be funded by English Heritage, will be around £195,000.

The Conserving the Future Heritage appeal is seeking to raise £70,000 as its share of the cost of the essential repairs.
